Pros: friendly.
Cons: location. won't rent again from dollar. did not realize dollar was 2 miles from airprt. if I had known that ,I would have rented from someone else. also I was originally told I would have to pay,a dropoff fee for dropping it before the office opened at 8. this didn't make sense and was ultimately waived.

10 Nov 2015
Pros: Got a great vehicle for low price.
Cons: Service was slow. My departure flight was early, before office opened. Told to leave car in short term parking, but was not told there was a $35 charge for this! Was told I could pre-pay my gas for $2.05 a gallon, was not told they would charge for a full tank no matter how much gas was in tank. ($40) No I would not rent again from them!

Pros: Rep was polite

Difficult to Find
Pros: Car had low mileage and clean, and staff was good.
Cons: Off airport, finding the location is made more difficult by the Dollar signage being small and obscured by the building when coming from the west. Very busy road so easy to drive by, which we did twice.

26 Jul 2016
Pros: The special effort made by the Hertz agent to get me out of my dilemma of the Budget office being closed.
Cons: Due to a flight delay we arrived late in Ashville and discovered the "off site" location for the car rental was closed. This created a major problem and it took over an hour to make special arrangements with Hertz to get a car. Overall it was a terrible experience. The only consolation was that the car was an upgrade to what I had reserved for almost the same price.

Fast, but confusing.
Pros: The Asheville drop off was exactly that. Once we found out where to leave the vehicle, it was very quick and they were very friendly.
Cons: There were no signs indicating where to leave the car. There were signs for every other rental company, but none for Thrifty.

12 Dec 2016
Pros: Price of the rental was great and the van was comfortable while driving it.
Cons: Two seat belts were broken and I was told there was a fee to drop off at another location. I was called to drop off at another location which caused confusion because never got an answer until I called the person back again. Van was very nasty on the inside when I picked up and I had to vacuum van out.

23 Jan 2017
Pros: I didn't end up renting the car because there was a hidden fee that doubled the price. When choosing a rental on kayak, I specifically looked for unlimited mileage. When I told the cashier I was driving to saint Louis he said it was out of my zone and would double the price. So I did not rent the car.

Would never use Kayak or Thrifty again....
Pros: Nothing...see my headline....
Cons: It turned that I paid twice as much as I was originally quoted. Take note future Kayak users! This is the first time that I used Kayak and Thrifty..will never ever use this service and car rental again!!!

Mixed feelings
Pros: Price on the car was extraordinarily low.
Cons: Took 30+ minutes for the van to pick us up at the Asheville airport. Checkin counters had 1 computer working. People waiting a long time to get car. Expected a regular car, got a Ram Hemi 4 door pickup- just for me.

10 Apr 2017
Cons: There was a fee for being driven to the rental office. I don't remember seeing that charge online and wasn't happy about it. I think a cab would have been cheaper. It was a $10 charge. It wasn't the small car I had reserved, got an upgrade to a suv which made things more difficult getting in and out.

10 May 2017
Pros: Car was newish with low miles, quick drop-off.
Cons: Location hard to find, not at airport, no signage on street or building - just faded, worn off Hertz sign; understaffed, nice staff but not focused; received a dirty car (mud on floor, dirt on seats, dirty all over outside) inside and out and was asked to accept it had to wait additional 30 minutes for staff to take car offsite to be washed. Car had been smoked in and sprayed with smoke 'cover-up' which made all who entered car smell; car ran mostly fine but strained on the highway with engine running high rpm; tried to scare into buying insurance.

Pros: I got to where I was going safely
Cons: The blue tooth was impossible to connect to, and then when you plugged the use into the car to charge your phone it would not play through the car speakers. So basically impossible to hear directions and to listen to your own music. This sucked. Further more the back seats in the car looked like they were attacked by a cat. And the car absolutely needed some engine/transmission work done. I rent cars frequently and this is my first bad experience. Just a sub par rental car. But I am renting another car today, hope for the best.

Took my reservation. Didn't have a car for me.
Pros: Said the cars that were there were reserved for other people. I said on well I have a reservation also, how come you aren't honoring mine but you're honoring theirs? No response. Got upset with me like it was my fault. Finally reached the conclusion that I could take a 12 passenger van as its the only car there that wasn't reserved. Again I don't know why my reservation wasn't as important. Anyway, I booked an economy car, so when I asked for a discount on a 12 passenger van as it is way to big for my use and will cost way more in gas mileage, she balked at me and acted as if I were crazy for even suggesting such a thing. Terrible customer service and overall lack of understanding of how to run a business.

"Reservation" does not mean that Budget will actua
Cons: I went to pick up my mid-sized SUV to find out that Budget did not have it and wouldn't have it. They indicated that they were not responsible for this error as someone else who was supposed to return the vehicle extended and they have no control over that. They offered a "full sized" car or 4-door pick up instead - for a higher cost (of course because they were more expensive options). Seems like if they don't have the car they promised, they should make it right without additional expense. I did agree to the sedan they offered (what choice did I have?) and then compared their list of scratches to what was really on the car. Many more on the car than what they reported, including ding in windshield and tape residue all over the inside of the windshield, which I had to scrape off with a razor so that I could see clearly on my trip. The car was dirty - food in the seat and smeared on the back of the front seat. I will pass on Budget as an option in the future.

Cons: The car I reserved was located 22 miles away off airport location. Internet booking did not indicate this at all. Agent at airport had me pay higher rate for a one day rental then gave incorrect information regarding swapping out the cars the next day. Paid twice as much for a smaller car and endured the hassle of dealing with the whole mix-up while on vacation. Budget just lost another customer.

Great experience
Pros: The car was comfortable and clean and we really enjoyed have the Sirius XM radio. It helped to have the entertainment on our 14 hour drive to and from Kansas City! Absolutely no problems. Customer service was great at pick up and drop off.
Cons: Would have been nice to have a CD player so we could listen to audio books.

Pros: Staff at location was nice.
Cons: They didn't have a cleaned vehicle for us. Found a box of uneaten chicken wings under the passenger's seat, several hours into our trip. Not happy about that or that they were not prepared for us to pick up a vehicle that day, even though we had made reservations several days in advance.

Okay
Pros: The car got great gas mileage which is what I was looking for a business trip I had to take.
Cons: The car was dirty inside! There was still trash in it when I got in. The cup holders and every crevice was crusted with who knows what. There were no floor mats so lots of stains. Glad I didn't have to take any clients in there with me! The windshield wipers needed to be replaced desperately which I didn't know until I had to drive on the highway in the pouring down rain and could barely see! They could do a lot better with the maintenance of their cars. Seemed like a bunch of young guys working there who couldn't have cared less.

10 Dec 2016
Pros: the staff were great and helpful, the car was clean and fine.
Cons: I HATE that they fill it up only half way and expect you to figure out how many gallons to fill it up half way. It feels like a cheap trick to get more money without really saying so and it makes the whole experience negative. Why do car companies do this. It's SO obvious. If they would state it up front before renting, it's different, but I didn't know. I will go back to Budget because they give me a full tank of gas. It may not be a lot of difference but I hate being taken advantage in ways that don't feel honest.
